Currently it seems not to be possible to build page sources based on SOAP- or REST-webservices.
Any plans to add this feature before final release comes or in a service pack?

You are right. We will add support for REST web services in one of the subsequent releases.

Thanks: 4 times
Will you also consider SOAP web services? Many already existing services for extracting corporate data are based on SOAP web services. It would save a lot of effort and speed up development to use these services also for mobile presentation.

Well, definitely. It is just so - SOAP web services are a lot more complicated to implement and support, which was precisely the reason for the web community to introduce REST web services. What I want to say - it is difficult to predict when we can get them done.

You have to understand one thing though: MobileTogether natively supports Altova FlowForce, which by itself is tightly bound to Altova MapForce. If you are only interested in loading and displaying foreign data from different locations or formats - you can always use Altova MapForce to retrieve and/or convert data for MobileTogether on the fly. MapForce supports natively in a great detail SOAP web services, along with reading formats like CSV, structural flat files, EDI, Excel, XBRL, etc, etc. I hope this helps!
